Redskins | Chris Thompson makes his four touches count

Sat, 24 Dec 2016 16:16:37 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson rushed three times for 20 yards and caught one pass for 17 yards, but he accounted for each of his team's first two touchdowns in a Week 16 win over the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: While this performance didn't come out of thin air, Thompson hasn't been useful in fantasy in about two months. It's a bummer for Rob Kelley owners, however, as it could be argued Thompson's first touchdown (from seven yards out) or Kirk Cousins' third-quarter TD on a quarterback sneak were plays Kelley usually gets the ball. Thompson is a low-end flex at best in Week 17 against the New York Giants.

Redskins | Chris Thompson wins it for WAS

Sun, 11 Dec 2016 14:28:19 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson ran three times for 38 yards, including a 25-yard touchdown with 1:54 remaining, in a 27-22 win over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: The Redskins running game was more by committee this week, so it's hard to tell whether Thompson will get much better carries or yardage with Rob Kelley also in the picture. Unless Kelley is hurt, Thompson may be best left on the sidelines.

Redskins | Chris Thompson will play

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 12:19:57 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (illness) is officially active for the team's Week 13 game.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson likely will handle his usual workload this week and should see time on third downs. Owners in most leagues should be able to find better options to use and can avoid Thompson.

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (illness) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 2, and is listed as questionable for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson should be fine for the game against the Arizona Cardinals and will see his usual workload. He has not posted great numbers in his limited playing time and can be passed over in all leagues.

Redskins | Chris Thompson to maintain role

Thu, 10 Nov 2016 17:00:21 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson will continue to serve as the team's backup and third-down running back, even with RB Matt Jones expected to return in Week 10, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson has done a nice job in his role, even exhibiting shades of being a successful starting running back in the NFL one day. Unfortunately for him, Gruden is also high on undrafted rookie Rob Kelley, who will continue to operate as the team's No. 1 tailback. But Thompson at least gets to keep his role, apparently, which makes things very murky at best for Jones. Thompson is really only a flex/RB3 option in the deepest of leagues.

Redskins | Chris Thompson not expected to start

Wed, 26 Oct 2016 19:07:47 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson is not expected to start in Week 8 game against the Cincinnati Bengals in London, even if RB Matt Jones (knee) cannot start. "Chris (Thompson) has such an important role as far as third downs and his specialty role that we need him in that role, and he's not a very big guy. We don't want to give him the ball 35 times between the tackles, you know? We'd like to have a more physical guy do it."

Fantasy Tip: If Jones is unable to go, Rob Kelley is the tailback to target for the Redskins. He might be a solid sleeper as a flex option in Week 8 against a Cincinnati Bengals rush defense allowing 118.4 yards per game, 24th in the NFL.

Redskins | Chris Thompson totals 113 yards

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 17:50:06 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson rushed 12 times for 73 yards in the Week 7 game against the Detroit Lions, and he added seven receptions for 40 yards on seven targets.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson outperformed Matt Jones, who was mostly bottled up in the loss. Thompson's fantasy value is trending upward, and he is worth scooping up off the waiver wire heading into Week 8 against the Cincinnati Bengals if he is available. He has flex appeal for the game in London.

Redskins | Chris Thompson finds end zone

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 21:02:02 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson worked as the No. 2 tailback in Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He rushed four times for 23 yards and a touchdown and he had a pair of receptions for 16 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson worked behind Matt Jones, but neither of the tailbacks had a ton of opportunities with the team falling behind and going mostly to the air on offense. Thompson, not Rob Kelley, was the backup and is the one to own in deeper fantasy leagues heading into Week 2 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Redskins | 60-40 split for Redskins RBs?

Fri, 02 Sep 2016 06:57:18 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones could receive 60% of the carries in the committee approach, and RBs Rob Kelley and Chris Thompson would account for the other 40%, in the opinion of beat writer Rich Tandler.

Fantasy Tip: Jones is a solid RB2 in PPR leagues, but his usage might be capped a bit early on unless he separates himself from the pack. Kelley has been a nice story this preseason, but he and Thompson offset one another to a degree. Both are in the RB5 conversation, but they are wild cards or handcuffs.
